LAW and .ABOGADO – Expanded Eligibility, Revised Verification Process and Price Changes
Minds + Machines Group Limited announced the following changes to its .LAW and .ABOGADO new gTLDs from August 2, 2016 (16:00 UTC):
The registry will allow authorized legal institutions (i.e., law firms, law schools, legal regulators such as bar associations, and courts of law), subject to verification, to register a domain. Further information is available at: http://nic.law/eligibilitycriteria/.
Revised Verification Process
The verification process for all registrants will occur after registration. Domains will be provisionally delegated to a registrant and registrants will still be required to complete the qualified lawyer or authorized legal institution information for verification but will no longer have to wait until verification is complete to use the domain name. While a domain is live, registrants will remain subject to the verification process and those failing the process will have their domain withdrawn, therefore you may want to wait until verification is confirmed (usually a 1–2 business day process) before making a site go live.
